thoughts & prayers to all those affected by the tragedy in boston.
I’m still at a loss for words. hold your loved ones a little closer. it is so sad to see what our reality has become. but beautiful to see complete strangers come together.
as I mentioned last week, [J] was away on business, for 7 days. he came home for 48 hours. and off he went again ..
he travels frequently for work. it can be sudden, or planned in advance. he could be gone for a week, or a day. it’s really hard to keep up with. but you’d think after two years of living together & his schedule staying consistently inconsistent, I’d be well-adjusted.
I’d much prefer to travel with him; gallivanting around, while he’s working. unfortunately, that’s not always the case.
for allllll the times it’s not, he brings me back ..
next to traveling myself, I love souvenirs. they’re thoughtful. even if it’s a knickknack you’re going to toss in a drawer, never to be seen again – they say “I was thinking of you while I was away”. it’s the thought that counts people.
what makes the best souvenir: an item that you can bring home and your loved one can experience, as if they were in the city themselves.
they’re all things heavily associated with their city, at least in my mind. what’s more new orleans than hurricanes & cafe du monde? oh, beads. but what the heck would I do with those? decorate our kitchen?
enjoy your tuesday.
